Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in your
Precious memories

Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don't want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don't want to let this go
I, I
Don't...

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight

    This song is great. its about a girl who loves a boy so much and can't get him out of her mind. She's heading home from somewhere so that she'll hopefully meet him there. She wishes he will still be there.

    This song truly proves that music is everlasting. It doesn't matter how old the song is but the message that the song has could relate to us all in what ever time or generation we live in presently. "A Thousand Miles" is truly a classic and not many songs can match up to this one.
